      Backstage Access: QUOR with THE HU

      Dirtbag Artists QUOR and Mongolian rock gods THE HU took Southern California by storm last weekend, beginning Thursday at The Observatory, North Park in San Diego, and ending with a bang to a sold out crowd at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles. Heads were turned, throats resonated, friends were made, and rock and roll was had by all. Check out some of the backstage shenanigans: (mostly just dudes on cellphones with surprise cameo appearances by Ron 'Thunderwood' Underwood and Sam Show).

      The HU is a band from Mongolia that blends hard rock and traditional Mongolian throat singing. Their first two videos (“Yuve Yuve Yu” and “Wolf Totem”) immediately went viral garnering the band over 30 million views. The explosive reaction to The HU resulted in a number of features about the band in global media such as NPR, GQ, The Independent, VICE, ET India Times, Playboy Mexico, Jack Canal+Fr, Hong Kong 01, DW as well as a sold out European Headline tour.

      The Hu stands for the Mongolian root word for human being, inspiring their original style of music that they call “Hunnu Rock.” The band pull Inspiration from the Hunnu, an ancient Mongolian empire better known as The Huns in western culture. Their music is deeply embedded with their ancient culture, even integrating old Mongolian war cries and poetry into their lyrics.

      The group was founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia by their producer Dashka, along with band members Gala, Jaya, Temka, and Enkush. Together they create rock music with traditional Mongolian instrumentation such as the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp), guttural throat singing built around the pillars of heavy rock: distorted guitars, bombastic drums, and aggressive rhythms. All four members have earned Bachelor’s or higher degrees in classical music and have gained several years of touring experience throughout Asia and the Pacific Rim. The band’s inaugural performance as The HU was in June 2019 in their hometown, followed by their first headlining European and UK tour this past June and July which sold out. The band also debuted this summer on several major festivals including in Download Festival, Rock Am Park, and more.

      Since the formation of the band, they’ve been working on their debut album entitled The Gereg. The word was used as the first diplomatic “password” by the Mongol empire during the time of Genghis Khan. The album contains nine songs including the recently released “Yuve Yuve Yu,” “Wolf Totem”, and “Shoog Shoog” and is slated for a global release on September 13th, 2019 on Eleven Seven Music.

      The HU will embark on a world-wide tour in support of their debut album, and one thing’s for certain: this show is not to be missed.

      Bandmembers:
      Gala: Lead Throat Singer and Morin Khuur
      Enkush: Lead Morin Khuur and Throat Singer
      Jaya: Jaw Harp, Tsuur, Flute, and Throat Singer
      Temka: Tovshuur

      Dirtbag Artists BLUE MIDNIGHT to perform Aftershock Festival in October

      Dirtbag Artists BLUE MIDNIGHT to perform Aftershock Festival in October

      California's biggest rock festival is back for its eighth annual bash.. and this time, DIRTBAG Endorsed Artists BLUE MIDNIGHT have made the bill.

      The festival takes place October 11-13 at Discovery Park near Downtown Sacramento, CA. Many acts are set to perform, including: Slipknot, Dropkick Murphys, Lamb of God, HALESTORM, Sum 41, Stone Temple Pilots, Blink 182, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Korn, and many more...

      BLUE MIDNIGHT is the brainchild of frontlady, Justine Glaser-- and the group has swiftly established themselves as the stargate to a new genre, which they firmly classify as 'Dream Metal'.

      BLUE MIDNIGHT will be performing on the Monster Energy stage, opening up the day, and warming up the stage for the triumphant return of TOOL at the end of the night.. an all-time favorite of Justine's. This will be BLUE MIDNIGHT's first music festival performance.

      “We are ready to roll! The guys and I are so excited to be a part of this and there are so many amazing bands on this bill. I think the best thing about music festivals is that people go to listen and enjoy music. Performance-wise, we are going to be feeding off the energy of the crowd. I love that we are going to be playing in front of a crowd of die hard music fans.”

      Justine Glaser in a recent interview with Metal Pulp and Paper
